Pentium 4 2.4ghz processor#2 ASUS P4PE Motherboard#3 512MB Dram#4 Geforce TI 4200 Graphics card by PNYNow I can run FS with everything maxed out and till get FPS in the 20's + 30's +Very happy now.I used to run it with a P III 450 mhzand got 10-12 fps at the most with settings set at around 50%ThanksMikeFavorite Real world plane to fly Warrior II

yep great combo indeed !!!was my first choice, but as I still have to wait a little for CPU prices to drop I want to go with 2.53 I will also wait for the new ASUS P4G8X to come out and I think I will build it then... it will support my 8x video card and got some dualchannel memory support that supposed to give some extra horsepower.For video I bough an ASUS Ti4200 128RAM 8xAGP and use it on my old putter for now.... lack of extra $$$ gotta pay taxes can't leave out the government it just wouldn't be fair to them :-lolAndy

While the P4PE has three memory slots, only two can be used if you use commonly available double sided DDR memory cards. Effectively your maximum DDR is 1 GB until single sided high speed DDR becomes available.Also the folks over in the RC30 support forum indicated the SoundMax on board audio chip was not adequate to support Radar Contact. I tried it both ways with a SB Live! and with the SoundMax and found the performance of RC30 lacking in both. I've quit using RC30 because of the speech and lack of other AI aircraft on the frequency with you.LarrySystem: Asus P4PE 2.4 GHz (Overclocks easily to 2.5) 1 GB PC2700 DDR (in two slots), LeadTek Ti4600 128 MB.
